The fourth image is from Silloth Green
looking towards the Town centre. Silloth is a
fairly small Town with the centre laid out in
the 1860s, soon after the Railway reached the
area in the late 1850s.
The Town was designed as a Seaside Holiday
Resort, mainly for residents of the City of
Carlisle, 23 mile east.
The Town centre has wide streets with
chunky Victorian buildings, no doubt built
with the intention of having a much larger
Town built around it.
The main street in Silloth is Criffel
Street with the Christ Church being the
tallest building. This Church was built with
granite imported from Ireland, completed in
1870. Large Image of Christ

Scotland border, with Dumfries and Galloway
